Laila's 4th Birthday

My big Laila, I can't believe she is four and in a way hoping we have passed the terrible 3's! She is so independent I feel she wishes things would always go her way. It has been interesting to see how sweet and caring she is with her younger sisters. I love when she is being goofy and fun I think one of her talents is being able to make others laugh! She truly is the life of the party. I am so grateful for the many lessons she teaches me on a daily bases. I am learning to really look at the good in everything and she makes me want to be a better mother and example to others. I LOVE HER SO MUCH! 
Whenever I leave Sadie and she begins to cry Laila rushes to hold her and gives her loves.

DIY project

Last summer I wanted to buy some wicker chairs but never went out to buy some and I think they were to expensive. This year I was dieing to get some and Devin had found the perfect ones for $600 dollars but I am way to cheap to spend that much money even if we had it to spend. I started looking at yard sales and thrift stores. I was so super excited when I came across these at a thrift store for $20. They looked pretty bad and I think Devin was in a bit of a shock when he saw them. I went to work on cleaning them and scrubbing off the flaky pieces and then I sprayed them.


They are so beautiful! I am so super happy, the cushions cost more then the chairs! Now I bought fabric to make some pillows for  the back. I love that I have a place to sit when my kids are playing outside and when Devin is weeding!

Sadie 6 months

I can't believe she is 6 months, she is starting to sit up and plays with toys. She weighs 15 pounds.
I have been feeling sad because this might be the last of my baby days. I don't want to forget how much joy I feel when she is doing new things or when she giggles and smiles at me,  but I know I will.
